You'll learn a lot of things in college, but there's one thing the textbooks won't teach you: how to acquire marketable job skills before you graduate.Award-winning college professor and student adviser Bill Coplin has been developing skill-based liberal arts curricula for more than 30 years, and has helped thousands of students get great jobs. Here, he lays down the essential skills you need to survive and succeed in today's job market, based on his extensive interviews with employers, recruiters, human resource specialists, and employed college grads. Going beyond test scores and GPAs, Coplin teaches you how to develop real-world know-how in ten crucial skill groups:
  • Work Ethic
  • Physical Performance
  • Speaking
  • Writing
  • Teamwork
  • Influencing People
  • Research
  • Number Crunching
  • Critical Thinking
  • Problem Solving Mastering these 10 THINGS, you'll earn not only your degree but also the skills you need to impress employers and land your dream job right after college.

The ultimate playbook for college students.” —Pierre Mornell, author, HIRING SMARTClick for an excerpt featured on Newsweek's website.

In 10 THINGS EMPLOYERS WANT YOU TO LEARN IN COLLEGE, Coplin teaches you to solve complex problems, influence people, and detect BS--realworld know-how your textbooks don't teach you.
